Every product is processed in our Walkerburn factory to ensure we have full control over the final result, and we have attained ISO9001-2008 accreditation for our excellent quality management.
Many of our products are what the industry refers to as ultra pure, with impurity levels often measuring at only a few parts per million.
We endeavour to reduce or eliminate any impurities that are likely to conflict in the application of the end user, so we encourage dialogue with our customers to determine how we can maximise the most prescriptive solutions for their individual analytical needs.
Each distillation goes through comprehensive testing in order to optimise quality across a number of analytical parameters.
Our procedures enable us to have full traceability from original manufacture to end product fulfillment.
Rathburn Chemicals is a family-owned company producing high quality solvents in the village of Walkerburn in the Scottish Borders.
Rathburn Chemicals was founded by Dr Angus Campbell Mackay, with a single still, in 1975. As the business grew, it was the first company in the UK to offer solvents for HPLC and these remain a core Rathburn product. The business has grown thanks to customer recommendation and repeat sales and its reputation for excellence and reliability endures.
The striking red, black and orange livery of Rathburn Chemicals is a familiar sight in many laboratories in the UK and overseas, and the company has a number of high-profile customers in the fields of medical research, pharmaceuticals, food and drinks manufacture, and government agencies. We are also pleased to serve many smaller companies with the same attention to detail and competitive pricing.
